For the past seventeen years, Porchlight has been San Francisco’s premier storytelling series. Each month, co-founders Beth Lisick and Arline Klatte invite six people to tell ten-minute true stories without using notes or memorization. Past storytellers include some of the area’s most entertaining school bus drivers, mushroom hunters, politicians, socialites, sex workers, musicians, authors, systems analysts, and social workers. This is a partially seated show—arrive early for a seat. ($28, 21+)
